Students throughout the Hinckley-Big Rock School District receive a variety of supports from their school and community. Students in the Multiple Handicapped program are no exception.
Students in this program need assistance in learning domestic skills as they work toward independent living upon leaving high school. Through generous grants and donations, the MH classroom has been renovated to include a washer, dryer, stove and refrigerator.
These improvements were made possible by support from a Grant from DeKalb County Community Foundation, donation of work by Mendel Plumbing and Heating of St. Charles, donation of time and money by the Hinckley-Big Rock FFA staff and students, and many hours of work by the district maintenance/custodial staff.
All of this support has allowed the students access to a fully stocked kitchen and laundry area within the classroom. They are able to practice valuable life skills multiple times each week.
The staff and students thank all those individuals who contributed to this effort.
This is a perfect example of school and community working together to support students. It really does take a village.
